OCALA SPOTLIGHTED ON JULY 8TH
AS PART OF LEVITT AMP VIRTUAL MUSIC SERIES
Songwriter & artist Julie Black performs creative, original, no-compromise music. She’s a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, grant-supported artist who draws influences of blues, jazz, soul, swing and rock. The Levitt AMP Virtual Music Series will spotlight Ocala on July 8th at 8 p.m. eastern time through a performance coordinated by the Marion Cultural Alliance, City of Ocala and Reilly Arts Center. Ocala's performance features artist Julie Black Band.
Julie and her band were scheduled to perform this month as part of the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series, which featured 10 free concerts at Webb Field from April to June. Unfortunately, the series was postponed due to COVID-19, but Julie's performance will be part of a national performing arts series featuring artists from Levitt AMP cities across the country.
The series is also supported by the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation through the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series. The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation empowers communities to transform underused public spaces into welcoming destinations where the power of free, live music brings people together and invigorates community life.
